HAPPENING NOW: #SB233 is on the floor in the Georgia State Senate.
Follow along for updates!
#SB233 would give $6000 in public dollars for any student to attend private or homeschool, purchase curriculum, hire a tutor or pay tuition at a community college, among other "qualified education expenses."
Up to half the money provided for a K-12 education could be rolled over each year and at graduation used to go to a Georgia college or university. K-12 funding should not become anybody's college savings account.

NEW #FundOurFuture messaging guidance from ASO & @WMTFAction shows how we to mobilize and move voters to demand wealthy corporations pay us what they owe in wages and taxes so we can fund what our families need.…
Applying the Race Class Narrative & best practices of persuasion, we can flip the script and up voter engagement for progressive taxation, while inoculating against rightwing dog whistles that undermine faith in and desire for robust, effective government.
A winning message to #FundOurFuture begins by naming a shared – community, safety, prosperity – in a way that lifts up race and class and brings people together.

"The appraisal district estimates that Neuhaus owes $434,773 in 2020 property taxes for the two plats of riverfront property on which he allowed Fisher Sand & Gravel to build the private border wall in January."

A private border wall hatched by grifters…
This is an eye popping increase from the estimated $8,000 in taxes that Neuhaus, a sugar planter, previously paid. Yet, "(t)he assessed amount was based on border wall miles & structure that had been built as of Jan. 1, which was only 38% of the project that was later completed."
That means Neuhaus is looking at next year's tax bill of over $1M. Essentially, his collaboration with Bannon & We Fund the Wall grifters has rendered his land worse than worthless - it's now a $1M liability. Which is what happens when you publicly boast that $42M was spent...

First they came for my neighbor, the immigrant, & deported him, breaking up his family, but I didn't say anything because he was just a neighbor.

Op-eds like this are the natural results of treating students as customers for ~20 years…
Even at elite, wealthy institutions the commodification of education has made IHEs desperate to have their students back on campus, regardless of public health, because students = revenue
Of course we need widespread testing, of course we need contact tracing, of course we need better health infrastructure to treat COVID19 in a timely and compassionate manner, we need that EVERYWHERE
